Paradise Beverages will launch a new 440ml can at the 2018 Fiji Bitter Marist 7s on March 23-24 at the ANZ Stadium, Suva.

Paradise Beverages sales/marketing manager Joe Rodan Snr confirmed this during the launch of the 42nd Fiji Bitter Marist 7s yesterday.

Rodan confirmed the 440ml can will have the Fiji Bitter Marist 7s logo on it.

“We are going to be putting up souvenir can during the Fiji Bitter Marist 7s. The Fiji Bitter 440ml can will be launched next year.

“We are recognising the work of Marist Rugby Club in the last 41 years,” Rodan Snr said.

Marist Rugby Club president Lawrence Tikaram confirmed they will have a booth during the two-day tournament to support Fiji Rugby Union’s bid to host a World Sevens Series tournament.

“We will set up laptops in the booth where the public can go online and support the bid,” Tikaram said.

With the theme ‘Marist Family Spirit’ for next year’s tournament, Tikaram is encouraging families to participate.

“42 years on we are encouraging family spirit in 2018,” he added.

Brother Sam Eathorne, patron of the Marist Rugby Club, believes in the concept of developing grassroot rugby.

“Marist is the name of a religious organisation founded in France 201 years ago,”Brother Eathorne said.

“It was founded for the education of young people who had no one to teach them because most of the men who were supposed to be teachers were fighting in the war.

“That’s why I’m associated with the Fiji Marist 7s because it involves grassroots rugby.

“ The Marist Brothers philosophy is people on the edge need the help most.

“This tournament is helping people and I fully support the Marist Rugby Club initiative.”
